No stamping today, but here's a little glimpse of what's been keeping me from my craft desk.
Today was college-prep intensive, with a new adjunct orientation (including an active shooter video from campus police); getting a faculty ID card, mailbox, and locker (since adjuncts don't get offices); and a visit to human resources. Oh, and a stop at Starbucks. Which is in the library.
Isn't that heavenly?
I also got the key to my classroom on the main campus.
This level of technology in the classroom is completely new for me. I do NOT like how the monitors divide up the class. As a vertically-challenged individual, I worry that students won't even be able to see me or hear me. Oh, well. We will make it work. Somehow. Maybe I can ask George to make a box for me to stand on.
Would the symbolism of getting my getting up on a soapbox be counter-productive?
One thing gave me confidence, however. I turned on the computer and projector, logged into my account, and synced the monitor and projector properly on the first try. Like. A. Boss.
Now, if only it works so well on the first day of class....
With classes starting next Monday, my next task is developing the syllabus for the two classes, which I can finally begin because my computer account is fully up-to-date.
Oh how joyous it is to plan a semester again!
Thanks for your understanding in this time of transition.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
